View Full Version : Sox goodies on my balcony

I came home last night to find a DHL delivery notification on my door. The notification said "on balcony". Huh? I have a balcony on the second floor of my house which faces the street. I hike upstairs, head out side and sure enough, there's a package on the balcony from DHL. Did the delivery guy just heave it up there? Did he have a ladder? I put the logistics out of my mind when I noticed the package was from 333 W. 35th St.

Inside was basically every promo item from the season. Included was:

- Opening Night rally sock
- magnetic schedule
- replica WS ring
- replica WS trophy
- 2006 calender
- WS poster
- beach towel
- youth jersey
- WS cap
- WS mini banner
- pink cap
- pennant
- halfway to St. Patrick's Day cap
- red cap
- team poster
- Nike baseball cards

:bandance: :bandance: :bandance:

The only thing that was missing was the rally towel, Crosstown Classic cup, MLB lanyard, other baseball cards w/binder and the mini baseball park.

Anyone else get this thing?

I got one on Wednesday... I'm amazed... Normally it takes us Indiana folk a good 2-3 days longer to get the stuff from the Sox but a day earlier?

not I (yet). Maybe this is not for full season tickets holders (me) and rather for studs who make it to all 81 games (something certain Sox players cannot claim).

Looking forward to the red hat, I missed that one because I tailgated too long that night.

The pdimas tailgate ruined me on collecting promo items. I missed all the caps, the WS poster, WS banner, beach towel, etc. the first time around. Ironically, I had gotten all the items that weren't included in the box when they first debuted. How's that for luck? So now I'm pretty sure I have at least one of all the promo items. Radical...

DHL could have came when I was napping and I would have never heard the bell. I will look today. Hopefully they just leave it at the office. They are notorious for not leaving door tags.

The K-Zone sheet doesn't indicate partial plans getting promotional items mailed to the holders. The Sox might make an exception if they have extras of a given item, the ticket holder is a long time holder, etc.

i almost traded my brother's ring for an old comiskey seat, but the guy ended up buying a ring on ebay before we could finalize the deal

My wife said it was perfectly centered in front of the balcony door, as if it had been set there. But do DHL delivery guys really carry around ladders and are encouraged to climb up onto the second floor of people's homes? Seem like a good way to get a gun pulled on you.

If it was thrown, it would have to have been a perfect throw. The box wasn't smashed up as if it had rolled and the contents weren't scattered about so that makes me doubt the throwing theory.

Here's what I got:

1. There was a worker on our balcony. It is a new home in an under construction development so there are lots of workers about. But we don't need any work done on our balcony so I can't imagine why they would be up there.

2. The workers next door offered their ladder to the delivery man.

3. The delivery guy pulled the truck up to the balcony, climbed up on the truck and either climbed onto the porch or threw it from the truck.

know what I got from DHL yesterday? My 2006 post-season tickets. Not only was it a slap in the face, but ***? I would have missed the entire division series. When i didn't get the post-season tickets after a week or two, i figured that they figured it out and never mailed them. nope. All it did was snap me out of my bears delirium and remind me of this pathetic season. I mean, look at the teams left in the post-season...we should be on our way to a repeat this year. what a crock.

Right after the playoffs started, the guy in my office who is a Scout Seat owner (4 seats), got his postseason tickets with a letter stating that while "we did not make the playoffs this year" the Sox thought he might want to have the tickets as a "momento." He was not amused. I thought it was funny that Scout Seat holders got their tickets after us regular seat owners got ours.

Although this was a surprise, I don't wittingly mail any parcel to my abode, rather to my office where it's guaranteed to be signed for and not stolen. I trust United Parcel about as far as I can throw 'em.

That said, I strangely didn't get a gift package for my two games attended, but it's good you got a pretty sweet box because you definitely earned it. Nothing chinsy looking either, way to go White Sox org.

Soon, I am told. Of course, my rep is now gone, so I had to call when my email went unanswered.

NOTE TO WHITE SOX STAFF WHO MIGHT BE LURKING: When the sales interns leave at the end of September, it would be real nice if season ticket holders were notified so we can email questions to a real live person. I am a full season ticket holder, lower boxes, I would expect a little more attention, especially just before renewal time. Also, is it possible for the internships to end after first invoices are due? That would make life easier for us, the customers. Thank you.

if you had playoff money roll over, you do not need to pay up to 50%. But to qualify for teh last ring raffle, you need to pay 50% of your balance by nov 15.

I was originally looking into that as well (go from two seats to three). My rep indicated this wouldn't be too difficult but then again, my seats are in Upper Reserved. I can't imagine this would be easy to do in the lower level, even for long-time holders.

I'm trying to stay positive about this and figure out the logistics of filling thousands of boxes in an assembly line process with just a couple of temps in a storage facility, then labeling them before getting them to DHL.

This could take weeks.

So I'm just guessing some of us just happen to be at the bottom of the list and will receive it in due time(whatever that is).

mine came in yesterday....driver yelled "go sox" as he drove away
the boxes are originating from the cell, so it appears that they have staffers packing them one at a time....when i used to get bulls items for being an st holder, they'd ship from the burbs, so they'd probably ship them out from a distro center, and all at once.
i think the sox being forced to use dhl may also factor in the long times. dhl probalby cant accept 10k big boxes at once.
